I love fly fishing. I am an International Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Two Hand Casting Instructor with fifty years experience in fly fishing, casting and fly tying to share. Please feel free to send me an e-mail and I will tell you what I know. My areas of knowledge are in fly fishing and fly tying for North Eastern trout, Landlocked salmon and the experience of over thirty five rivers world wide fly casting to Atlantic Salmon.
Having bead heads to weight flies creates a front loaded and diving presentation. Having weight distributed under the tying of a pattern can offer an even presentation or back weighted possibilities, especially on streamers. Color coding with subtle differences in thread for the head of the fly offers the ability to tell heavy weighted flies from lightly weighted. Create your code and just stay within a patterns range.
